Heather Locklear, mother of 10-year-old Ava, was arrested on Saturday on suspicion of driving while impaired. The actress was pulled over while driving in the Santa Barbara area. Law enforcement officers report that alcohol was not involved, however, they are conducting tests to determine if Locklear was under the influence of drugs. She was released, without having to post bail, on Sunday.
This could set up a nasty custody battle given that Locklear and ex-husband Richie Sambora have both been busted for similar charges. In March of this year, Sambora pleaded no contest to DUI (Ava was in the car when he was driving under the influence). It’s been reported that no children were in the car when Heather was arrested.
In June, Heather checked herself into an Arizona medical facility for anxiety and depression.
